About 12:25 p.m. on Friday, October 14, 2016, a 2007 Ford school bus owned and operated by Mar-Can Transportation, Inc., was eastbound on West Fordham Road in the borough of the Bronx, New York City, New York. The investigation determined that the 47-year-old male driver was operating the bus while off duty, without passengers. (He was scheduled to start his afternoon shift 1 hour later.) As the bus approached the intersection of West Fordham Road and Sedgwick Avenue, the driver attempted to turn right onto Sedgwick Avenue. The bus was traveling in the left through lane on West Fordham Road, with another vehicle beside it in the right lane. The bus driver accelerated and made an abrupt turn in front of the other vehicle, causing its driver to slam on the brakes to avoid colliding with the bus. The bus overshot the turn and ended up on the east side of the double yellow line on Sedgwick Avenue, where it struck a 43-year-old female pedestrian in the crosswalk.
